The Baku, Azerbaijan-based carrier’s first Boeing 747-8F was delivered last week and the second aircraft was delivered on August 28.

On the same day, August 28, Embraer received both welcome and potentially unwelcome news from Japan Airlines concerning the manufacturer’s E-Jets and E-Jets E2 families.

Star Alliance member Aegean Airlines has brought forward the delivery dates of five new Airbus A320s it ordered before the beginning of the economic crisis in Greece but later deferred, and has ordered two additional A320s in a new deal.
